a peek inside the fishbowl

Archive for the ‘Fishbowl patrons’ Category

Who else is scouting out ideas for Christmas? I live in Westboro, and one of the things I really like to do is walk over to the main street and poke my head in the shops and see what’s shaking. I tend to spend a *lot* of time at Mrs. Tiggywinkle’s*. There’s always something fun and […]

As many of you already know, Saunders Farm is a longtime Fishbowl patron. We’ve visited Saunders in every season possible and have always had a good time. When the girls were small we enjoyed daytime visits in the fall in the lead up to Halloween and as they got older we slowly ramped up the […]

We have a winner! Was it you? Scroll to the end of the comments. You know what’s great about Spring in Ottawa – aside from the sunny warm weather of course – is the multitudes of people who suddenly appear outdoors. It’s kind of amazing. The winter layers disappear and we are walking, biking, running, […]

Some of you are already familiar with Fishbowl patron, Lice Services Canada – Ottawa Head Lice Treatment and Removal. They offer lice removal services to families at their Westboro location, travel to schools all across Ottawa AND treat lice at home! What I really appreciate is that Lice Services Canada offers frazzled parents practical help. […]

It’s Friday the 13th! Are you the superstitious type? I’m not EXACTLY superstitious but I would not like to break a mirror today.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human offspring: Emma (24) and Sarah (22). During the day I work as a writer at the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
